The president, Pradesh Congress Committee, Mr Kuldeep Rai Sharma has invited the attention of  the Lt. Governor, A & N Islands   towards the  problems  being faced by the  public  in general and the Muslim brothers in particular during the Holy month of Ramzan due to non- issuance of sugar through Fair Price Shops  by  Supply Department for the past 2-3 months.
In a letter, Mr Sharma said that the Muslims are now performing Roza and need sugar for preparation of sweets and other eatables for Aftari. “Sweets are also distributed by them  to others during  the  festival Eid-ul-Fiter  which falls on 26th of this month.   Due to non-issuance of sugar through FPS  the rate of sugar in the open market  is beyond the reach of common man and is not easily available,” said Mr Sharma urging the Lt. Governor to issue necessary directions to the Civil Supplies Department for issue of sugar through PDS.
